Devotion, Space, and Authority in Early Modern Iran and Deccan India
Peyvand Firouzeh, Ph.D. Cambridge University

Peyvand Firouzeh received her PhD from Cambridge University in 2016. Her work links early modern Persia and India, and aims to break down the traditional distinc-tion between the Islamic and the Indic. More specifically, she looks at Sufism as an element of elite patronage that transcended this larger region, revising a longstanding idea that Sufism was antithetical to elite political ideology. She is completing a book provisionally called Sanctity and Spatial Authority: Ne ‘matollahi Sufi Networks and Material Culture between Iran and Deccan India in the Early Modern Era.
